Jeremy Kerley: Week 8 Fantasy Outlook

RotoWireContributor October 23, 2013

Kerley suddenly turned into the catching machine he hasn't been all year in Week 7 against New England, grabbing eight balls for 97 yards and a touchdown, including several third-down conversions in big moments. While he's got touchdowns in two of the last three weeks, they're sandwiching a 19-yard clunker against Pittsburgh, and considering that Kerley has traditionally done his best damage against New England, he likely falls back to his more typical output of approximately 60 yards this week against the Bengals.
While in theory Kerley should be a huge part of the Jets' offense with Santonio Holmes out, his lack of size or elite speed has limited his productivity. Kerley did show some nice elusiveness last week, and the Jets will be looking for him to build some consistency for them in the slot, as running the ball on early downs and then going to Kerley on third was a winning formula against the Patriots.
